It was a rare treat for a Wednesday night.  The kids and I went to the Dothages for swimming and a nice dinner.  It was the perfect way to spend an evening!

Laura lost yet another tooth at camp on Friday.  She bit into a pretzel and it finally came out.  Kara, the Camp Director, put her tooth in a plastic bag and sealed it with pink duct tape.  Because Laura had a sleepover on Friday night, we put the bag on the ledge in the kitchen so that we would not lose it.  On Saturday, we did not get it put under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy because of the Ridgeway Elementary Pool Party and then a date night for Andy and I.  Well, that Tooth Fairy is pretty slick because Laura woke up to this today!  The Tooth Fairy found the tooth on the kitchen ledge, got the tooth out of the bag, and put $1 in the bag without taking off the duct tape.  Crazy Tooth Fairy!

The Ridgeway Elementary Summer Pool Party was this evening.  We all had a great time!  It was nice to see people that we had not seen in a while and it was nice to swim on the hot, hot day.  We also got to watch Laura going off the diving board for the first time!

We had hoped to watch John go down the slide (as he has done many times with Camp Mudd), but the lifeguard was being pretty strict.  I had to settle for a picture in the pool.

It was a fun evening at the pool with great Ridgeway families!

There is nothing better than a sleepover with your best friend!
